Gregg Zaun Fired By Rogers For Inappropriate Behavior Toward Female Staff

Baseball analyst Gregg Zaun has been fired from Rogers Sportsnet for inappropriate actions toward female staff. 

In a statement, Rogers Media President Rick Brace says the company received complaints from multiple women working at Sportsnet this week regarding inappropriate behaviour and language from Zaun. 

"This week, we received complaints from multiple female employees at Sportsnet regarding inappropriate behaviour by Gregg Zaun in the workplace," the statement said. "After investigating the matter, we decided to terminate his contract, effective immediately. This type of behaviour completely contradicts our standards and our core values. We believe in a professional workplace where all employees feel comfortable and respected. We are grateful to our employees who spoke with us and we will take every measure to protect their privacy.

The former major-league catcher had worked as an on-air personality at Sportsnet since 2006.
